How to Watch House of the Dragon Episode 5 Online (We Light the Way) From Anywhere

By Lore Apostol / September 18, 2022

The House Targaryen spin-off series premiered on August 21, and Episode 5 will air soon. You will be able to stream We Light the Way online quite easily, just like you do with all your other favorite content, even on the go or while traveling abroad. All the information you may need is found below, including the premiere date and hour, cast, and plot, so let's see when, where, and how to watch House of the Dragon Episode 5: We Light the Way online from anywhere in the world.

The spin-off series is based on George R.R. Martin's Fire & Blood novel and is placed around the Targaryen civil war that took place about 200 years before the events depicted in Game of Thrones. This means it serves as a prequel focusing on the rise of the reign of House Targaryen. Spoilers ahead!

As we've seen so far, the season focuses on the early life, adventures, misdeeds, and marriages of Prince Daemon Targaryen. The premiere opened with the Red Keep, where Queen Aemma and her newborn son died, and Princess Rhaenyra was the named heir to the throne, putting Daemon on a revenge path. In Episode 2, Daemon was banished from the Red Keep, and the King refused Lord Corlys' marriage proposal, taking Lady Alicent Hightower as his next wife instead. Episode 3 saw Rhaenyra feel unsure as to her ascension to the Iron Throne due to Alicent's firstborn son and Daemon's impressive display of defiance as he took on the Crabfeeder himself in the Stepstones. In Episode 4, Daemon, called "one of the biggest rogues in the entire history of Ice and Fire," declared himself King of the Stepstones and the Narrow Sea and tried to seduce Rhaenyra in a brothel to create rumors that would help him secure a place on the throne by marrying his niece. The next episode is poised to show more of Rhaenyra's wedding and the unraveling of Daemon's plan. You can see more details in the episode preview below.

We will continue to see Paddy Considine as King Viserys, Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen, and Rhys Ifans as Ser Otto Hightower, but we'll also see some new faces for a few characters, such as Emma D'Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Olivia Cooke as Queen Alicent Hightower. We also expect to start seeing Tom Glynn-Carney as Prince Aegon Targaryen.

House of the Dragon Episode 5: We Light the Way will air on the HBO network on Sunday, September 18, 2022, at 9 pm ET, and you will have the option to stream the episode on demand via the HBO Max service after it premieres on TV. This season has 10 episodes, and one new episode a week will air every other Sunday in the US and Canada and on Mondays in the rest of the countries until the season finale, which occurs on October 23.
